Below you'll find answers to the questions we get asked most when it comes to visiting Rotary's Camp Florida.
If your child belongs to a group that provides outreach services or support, ask them if they have a camp scheduled with us. If they do not, talk to them about organizing a camp! Our priority is to provide camping facilities to groups that serve children and adults with disabilities or special needs.
Our 21-acre camp has bunk space to accommodate 118 campers, and eleven beds in the infirmary, to meet your group’s needs.
Yes. Our campsite is ADA compliant, and service dogs are welcome!
No. Rotary Clubs throughout the state of Florida provide financial support to operate the camp so we can offer camping facilities to qualified groups at a deeply discounted rate. Rotary members recognized a need for this special facility and rose to the challenge to secure and operate our campsite. The continued support of Rotary throughout Florida allowed over 4,300 happy campers to enjoy our campsite last year.
Yes. However, our mission and first priority are to accommodate groups that serve children and adults with disabilities or special needs. If you book your group with us, and a priority group needs space, your group may be “bumped” or rescheduled for another time.
Rotary Clubs, Rotaract, and Interact Clubs, as well as Rotary Districts, can utilize the camp at special rates when space is available.
During the cooler months, and especially during weekdays, our campsite provides a clean, safe, and peaceful venue for company retreats, board meetings, presentations, or other team-building exercises. Talk to us about corporate packages. Proceeds from corporate packages provide scholarship support for children with disabilities to come to camp.
If your group plans to enjoy our Junior Olympic sized pool, you must hire professional lifeguards. Lifeguards must provide copies of their certification and driver’s license/photo identification. You can also hire lifeguards from one of the local organizations that certify lifeguards (YMCA, Brandon Aquatics, etc.).
The Airsoft Range requires a certified instructor on-site. You may bring your certified instructor (who must provide copies of certification and driver’s license/photo identification) or talk to us about the availability and pricing of on-site instructors.
Yes, there is a staging area in Leonard Hall, which accommodates classroom seating for 150. Audiovisual equipment including a projector and large screen is also available in the Publix Pavilion and Leonard Hall.
Our camp kitchen offers walk-in coolers and freezers, ice-maker, coffeemakers, commercial gas stove and oven, steam tables, and salad bar.
You are allowed to bring in your equipment and set it up at the move-in time specified on your contract. This time is based on the turnover time required between the start of your camping period and the end of the previous camp.
